CHT Ends Partnership with The King’s College; Director of Operations to Depart

The Center for Hebraic Thought and its magazine and podcast, The Biblical Mind, are entering a new phase after ending a formal partnership with The King’s College. Additionally, CHT director of operations and TBM editor Celina Durgin will leave her position at the center on July 28, 2023.

The CHT has been largely funded by a generous grant from Philos Project since it was founded in 2019, but King’s had provided the center with offices, event space, human resources, and accounting services. The CHT is exploring other potential partnerships both to take over the role King’s has played and to help expand and evolve the center’s fundraising opportunities, platform, programming, and content. The CHT began the process of becoming independent from TKC earlier in 2023.

Though King’s is not permanently closing, the King’s Board of Trustees decided July 17 that, because of financial struggles, the college will not offer classes for the fall 2023 semester. It will continue exploring its own partnership opportunities in an effort to resume operations in the future. 

The Biblical Mind magazine and podcast will keep publishing during this transition, though less frequently and regularly than it had been until recently. The CHT’s other partnerships and affiliations will be unaffected. We hope and pray for a new partnership to allow the CHT to emerge from its period of dormancy and resume full programming in the coming months. Thank you for continuing to follow us.
